Please stalk my chart!
I don't think it's looking good...

Like the title says, please stalk my chart and tell me what you think! I suspect AF is on its way, but as I have no charting history I have nothing to compare to. I had really sore boobs until this morning, gone now, and my only other sign is a heavy feeling in my abdomen- had that since just after ovulation.
So, charting gurus, your thoughts?

Could go either way as your temp is still above coverline. After a few months (if you're not UTD!) you'll get to know what your temp does around AF... for some people a drop in temps means AF is coming and for some it stays up through AF.

Your chart looks good! Like you said with no previous charts its too difficult to really tell if AF or a BFP is headed your way without actually testing though, but your temp is still high so it's looking good so far.


You also have a lot of temps that have open dots instead of solid circles. This just means that there is something different about that temp, most likely it was taken at a different time than normal. There are bbt correctors you can use to fix these up if you want, it might help you recognize patterns easier for future cycles (if this month isn't it)

How long are your cycles usually??
Did you BD around day 32?

Hoping your temp stays up tomorrow!

Thanks everyone- I don't have a regular cycle length, I have PCOS and this is the first time I've ovulated since coming off the pill in March. Clomid is my friend! Sore boobs are back- they must have just been taking a break! Still so worried and scared to test- I don't want to ruin Christmas, and I know it could be early...

We did bd on day 32- and 5 days either side of it. What can I say- it's the one thing we can control, so we went for it!

Your temp is still above your coverline which is good. I noticed my temps before AF sometimes slowly go down before it starts. Still a bit early to test (even though some people get early BFPs) Maybe you should enjoy christmas day and think about testing after original.gif

That's the plan, enjoy Christmas, then the cricket on Boxing Day, and test on the 27th- 14 DPO. Still 2 days before the FS said to test, but I'm not sure I'll be able to hold out any longer. I almost don't want to test. While I haven't tested I haven't got a negative- delusional, I know!

I'm feeling a bit better about it today! Stuck at the cricket in the hot sun though, and really feeling it. Only 20 degrees, but very warm in the sun at the MCG!

Keep hydrated cool.gif If you are UTD, that bub will be needing you to be keeping up the water biggrin.gif

We'll be stalking to see that test result, but don't feel pressured to do it tomorrow if you don't want - I'm sure we can hold out until the 29th for the test date recommended by your FS original.gif

Why haven't you tested?! At 12/13dpo you should get a clear positive if pregnant!!! Fingers crossed xx

I was too scared to test over Christmas in case it was negative! I've moved out of the sun now, so only really 1 hour of being a bit warm. Mainlining water and Christmas cake. I think I'll test tomorrow- FS is dreaming if she thinks I'm waiting until Saturday!

Well I'm now 14 DPO and got a BFN this morning. Gutted really, although my boobs weren't as sore which did have me concerned for the last few days. I have absolutely no signs of AF, just want it to arrive so I can move on from this cycle now. Can't see any hope for this one.

#15 TillyTake2

I'm sorry hun sad.gif How long is your luteal phase normally? They are normally no longer than 14 days but it does look like your temp is heading down. I don't know how late some people get bfp's but I would think that 14 dpo should show a bfp. It's possible you had a chemical pregnancy but that the test is now negative. How long have you been ttc?

The answer to all of that is a bit complicated! I went off the pill in March, with the intention if starting to TTC in August/September. My period never returned, and I was at the FS by the start of September. I have PCOS, and I had to have a Hysteroscopy, then I did a round of Clomid at 25mg which didn't work, then a round on 50mg which also didn't work, which was then converted into a 100mg round, which resulted in this cycle's ovulation. I ovulated late in the cycle (even if you count from the second batch of Clomid). As this is the first time I've ovulated I have no idea how long my LP is, except it is at least 14 days which I suppose is a good thing. I guess AF should turn up in the next few days - my husband is overseas towards the end of Jan, so I'd like to get going on the next cycle as soon as possible. Have to stop crying- yet another family event today...

So sorry sad.gif  bbighug.gif    

My boobs were sore for over 5 days & got me all excited too, but turns out they were AF signs.  They got less sore the day before also - if you're not feeling AF coming yet, maybe tomorrow? The sooner it comes, the sooner you can start a new cycle!  Of course, we never want to have to start a new cycle, because we're always hoping to be UTD, but I think it helps to see the positive side of things, or we'll all go mad!

Good luck & I hope you are successful in January!!!
